Housed on the third floor of the Miller School’s magnificent Old Main building and overlooking the lotus pond, the Miller School Library is a place for students to read, think, and learn together. Our print collection is specially tailored to support our curriculum and meet the reading interests of our diverse student body. The MSA fiction and graphic novel collection is always growing and new additions to the library are highlighted in book talks during assembly every couple of weeks. The library is also a research hub with nine computer workstations and a dedicated station for finding and checking out books. The library also features a robust selection of periodicals including digital access to The Washington Post and The New York Times and print subscriptions to The Paris Review, Velo News, Mental Floss, Sports Illustrated, National Geographic, Teen Vogue, Time Magazine and much, much more.
Our newly created Library Portal links to over a hundred and twenty five websites and databases hand-picked by faculty and covering every academic discipline. The Portal gives the students ready access to the World Book Encyclopedia, Expanded Academic ASAP, ProQuest, anddozens of specialized Gale databases covering such topics as Fine Arts and Music, Religion & Philosophy, and Environmental Science.
